National Neonatal Nurses Day only comes around once a year and we want to celebrate our amazing NICU nurses here at SJCH for your hard work and dedication. You not only care for and support our littlest most fragile patients, but you comfort and care for their families as well. Thank you for all you do. Your efforts make a difference that lasts a lifetime.

Tomorrow, September 13, is World Sepsis Day and we want to recognize our Sepsis team, led by Clinical Practice Manager, Jessica Harkey. SJCH became the first Adventist Health hospital, third hospital in California and first and only hospital in Kern County, to achieve the top disease certification for sepsis care from The Joint Commission. SJCH had a perfect survey, which certifies the hospital for two years in sepsis care. Thanks to everyone that has worked so hard to make this certification a reality!

I would give zero stars if I could. They need to see you literally dying to pay attention to you. Have been here for more than 6 hours with mom who has extreme pain and they haven't even had the decency or kindness to check her out yet. On a wall in the room they have a little plaque that says "Our prayer is that you will experience comfort and compassion, hope and healing." there is absolutely no comfort and we see no compassion in making a suffering woman wait more than 6 hours crying in pain while they just walk around laughing. I have absolutely no hope in this horrible hospital and we are not receiving any healing. Wouldn't reccomend to anyone!😠

Was treated well by most people who work here but the ones who treated me badly, treated me VERY badly. Case managers in the telemetry unit are simply evil people who have no business overseeing the care of a houseplant, let alone a human being. Anyone who goes to this hospital should have a LOT of time to wait because you will. You should also have a good lawyer on speed dial. You'll need that too.

Terrible service in ER! 14 hour experience! I came in with a possible ruptured aneurysm. 14 hours it took to be seen by the rudest nurse practitioner I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with. She had a bad attitude from the get go. I will never use this hospital again. It's unfortunate because I had great service from Ben in xray and a gentleman in ultrasound. The staff in the ER are obviously unhappy in their jobs and it really shows! I'll probably have to go to another hospital to get a correct diagnosis, I certainly didn't get one there. I highly recommend finding a different hospital!

Worst experience. I was told that San Joaquin had the best care in the area, that if I ever had an emergency this was the best place to take care of me. Well I regret coming here. Came into the ER with a fractured foot. Waited in the lobby 3 1/2 hrs before I was seen for my triage, then waited an additional 6 hrs after X-rays were taken for me to be seen by the actual Doctor. My foot was ridiculously swollen and bruised. I do not recommend people coming here for care. Worst care you will receive. I will not be back here in the future. Stay out of there, you will literally die waiting to be seen.

I can only repeat the negative views listed here. ER Staff is rude and inattentive. Very poor bedside manner and VERY POOR attention to detail. When we finally saw a doctor, his interview made it clear that records had not been done accurately at all. From the reports of the nights visit he was to believe that my wife was insulin requiring diabetic. (She reported PRE- diabetic to nurses. No idea where the insulin came from). The doc asked about her leg pain and argued that that is why she came in. (She went in for CHEST pain.). frustrating to deal with the staff up to that point, downright SCARY after that. Allergies were not recorded as reported either.

We have had nothing but good experiences with this hospital. All of the staff, nurses and doctors included have been wonderful, kind and helpful. I took my son in for stomach pain in the middle of the night. We did have to wait but that happens at EVERY hospital ER. Once they got us back to speak to the dr everything moved forward pretty quickly. He was diagnosed with appendicitis and his surgery was scheduled. Each and every one of the people we encountered during our time there was friendly and helpful. After a few bad experiences with Mercy Southwest we have chosen San Joaquin as our go to hospital.

Arrived before 1am. My one year old son was literally throwing up as we were walking in to the ER. A handful of other patients came in after me. They were attended to faster and discharge. Meanwhile my son's threw up twice in the waiting lobby. As instructed I informed the nurse, who simply continued to make us wait. I am still siting here waiting. After they said 3 more people if I could take a picture of the lobby it would show only my wife, son and myself with one other patient.

I rarely go to ER especially if it is not really emergent. I rather go and visit an urgent care and be evaluated. Unfortunately due to my sudden "Not feeling Good Situation" while in the middle of my errands I went to an urgent care to be assessed. The PA advised me to go to ER to be fully evaluated.I followed the instructions. Went to San Joaquin Community Hospital ER. I told the triage nurse about my scenario She took me inside ER room to be evaluated, ECG done, VS taken , a PA came and assessed me for 5 seconds and boom she's gone. I told them I am experiencing SOB , my chest felt tight ( no pain ) , I feel lightheaded and my hands feel swollen. I even told them I have history of asthma and I already took my rescue inhaler earlier. but I don't feel good all of sudden. I don't know how an ER Physician or nurse gathered the info for my History and Physical Assessment , was not assessed fully that's all I can say. As expected they let me sit in a room behind the nurse station with other patients. Some patients have their IV fluid hanging , being medicated,It is just a waiting game. A nurse came and made a roll call and notifying you what need to be done and etc.Some nurses already giving discharge instructions to other patients on that same room. Finally An ER Doctor came , ask me how I feel, cut me and concluded i ONLY HAVE AN ANXIETY ATTACK. I ask him what was my VS and i was surprised that my BP was High and I ask do you think my sudden High BP t made me feel sick? Because I been noticing that each time my BP high i am experiencing this symptoms and my concern is I am not Hypertensive nor I am not diabetic but I am a COPD patient and with some kidney issues. He firmly responded it is anxiety for my blood works is fine and my ecg is fine and i am still young.He order a med to calm me down. (????) and he will discharge me. A nurse came with a syringe on her hand and I politely asked her what medication is that and She said it is Ativan, I declined and my response was " My chest still feel tight and I still feel lightheaded but my fear ,it may make me feel worst" and she ask me how about a Valium and I told the nurse I did took that medication before for my Pre Med prior an MRA of abdomen and I had a hard time breathing that they need to put me on O2. I will just go home and monitor my BP and if my condition will worsen after this I will go back to ER then. A discharge RN came and she told me that missing instructions in my discharge paper she will come back. 2 CP came and ask me if i can step out of the room and have sit outside for they need to clean the room because I an done..Discharge RN finally found me and give me the discharge instructions that can be easily heard by other patients.So i requested to give me the instructions in a manner that their is a privacy. She said my Diagnosis is Anxiety , is there something going on lately?? Stressors??? I firmly responded If something is bothering me that will act as a stressor for me to have an anxiety attack why would I not address this to my Primary DR. so that he can give me a medication just in case i need one as needed. I asked the nurse what was my VS when I came in here because prior leaving urgent care my VS was fine and she told me about my BP. My response was " if i was being told that my BP was high and during that time i was being vocal my chest feel tight and i feel light headed and if only they rechecked my BP and reassess hour after to see if there was changes, and being fully assessed by a doctor by asking my medical history and Thorough a Physical assessment. A feeling of assurance and a plan of care could have been initiated.The reason why I agree to go to ER as per recommendation because I know something is not normal during that time. and who know's what will happen in between. My case is not life threatening but it was a waste of money , resources and time staying in ER . A proper disposition could have been made if it was being addressed properly.
